Homo Toxicus

Every day, tons of chemicals are released into the environment, without any certainty about their possible long-term toxic effects on living organisms. Moreover, the majority of the 100,000 molecules developed since World War II that are used in everyday products have never been tested… Some of them have already found their way into our bodies and into fetuses. Up to 247 toxic substances have been found in newborns. We are bequeathing our toxic legacy to our children along with our DNA! The conclusions are disturbing and challenge the way we live.
